Hey gordy,

Thanks for the reply.  I am actually using sqlite in part of my
application and I don't feel the need to stub that.  Even though I
don't use the in memory option, it is still zero configuration so I
build up my database in each test then delete it.

However, the way I interact with the MySQL database is different than
the sqlite portion.

Thanks again,
